ODS generates an empty PDF file when .sas is called from terminal

I am trying to generate a PDF file with some graphics: 

 

ods pdf file='/home/report.pdf';
            /* build graphics using SGRENDER */
ods pdf close;

 

When the code is executed from Enterprise Guide (v7,13), the PDF file is generated correctly. However, when the .sas file is executed using the command-line executable (in a Unix shell, running on Red Hat 6.5), the PDF file generated is empty (a blank page is output).

 

What should I be doing differently when running this code from shell?

 

Thanks!

1. Check your log.

2. Check that the account used to run in batch has authorization to write to the designated folder.
